What we do?
Additive Flow’s is developing a function-based optimisation workflow for advanced manufacturing.
The search space for new materials is large and complex, with our system new polymers and composites can be very efficiently explored, tested and produced with minimal human intervention.
3D printing materials are expensive and in most cases sub-optimal for the desired function. Our technology can reduce the cost of functional prototypes and improve performance through the use of targeted materials.
Are you ready for maximum impact? The Additive Flow manufacturing suite can integrate within an industrial framework, unlocking new product possibilities for advanced applications.
3D Printed parts behave differently to traditionally manufactured products. Our approach can present recommendations that take state-of-the art capabilities to their limit, based on how 3D Printed parts are expected to behave. This provides confidence to explore new design options, and communicate these internally and with clients.
Multi-material printing and gradients offers exciting product potential but significantly increases the complexity of decision making within design. Additive Flow’s tools specialise in guiding these choices so product teams can focus on realising their design objectives.
We can work with custom and commercial machine capabilities and their material implications, and as technologies and materials further expand design potential, designer’s are presented with evolving recommendations.
Import your design from any CAD/CAE software package into our desktop application.
Set the rules that define your functional goal, from forces through to conductance.
Based on your rules we run the relevant physics simulations to explore the solution space.
View all the solution interactively, understand the tradeoff and export your manufacturing files.
Cloud-enabled function-based design optimisation
Additive Flow’s tools can accelerate improvements by recommending designs based on objectives. Design possibilities are generated and users can feedback their preferences for accelerated creative exploration, while visualised metrics of options speed up communication and decision-making between teams.
Light-weighting and new materials can be explored with additive manufacturing for end-use or prototyping prior to mass-manufacture. Additive Flow’s software can include additional design objectives to meet business objectives, including cost.
Performance & Sustainability
With new materials and production methods, it is possible to select sustainable materials and methods while maintaining or increasing product performance. Including sustainability metrics within performance targets from product inception is a powerful tool to improve product impact in the market and the planet.
